And opposition “peaks,” at 66 percent, to much of his infrastructure plan—which includes “handing out tax breaks for privately funded roads, bridges, and transportation projects that would then charge tolls for people who use them,” ABC News reported.
The media outlets released the full joint poll after publishing some excerpts earlier in the day Monday, including the growing public demand for Trump to release his tax returns. The president-elect, who will also enter office with historic conflicts of interest, claimed in a press conference last week that Americans “don’t care” about his finances.
The latest statistics align with a separate poll, released last week by Quinnipiac University, which found that the presidential “honeymoon period” ended about as quickly as it began for Trump, as the traditional occurrence of post-election public goodwill barely gave a bump to his approval ratings before they dropped again to new historic lows. And a CNN/ORC survey released Tuesday also found Trump’s approval ratings to be “the lowest of any recent president.”
Another major point of dissatisfaction in Monday’s poll centered around Trump’s personnel choices, with 48 percent of respondents saying they disapprove of most of his nominees. Trump famously promised to rid his administration of special interests and corporate power players, but has since assembled the wealthiest cabinet in modern history with deep industry ties.
Another 57 percent of respondents say they fear he will do a poor job on race relations, and more than six in 10 think he will fail at issues of special concern to women.
The poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone January 12-15, sampling 1,005 adults. The margin of error is 3.5 points.
